tagged and that has been the good news that has given the water department time to work on those homes specifically. they will worry about the red tagged homes later. they are waiting for the water under ground to subside they think that could take 3 months before they are satisfied the ground is in fact not damp under there. all the homeowners have temporarily been relocated done at the cost of the city. so they are pleased that the city is picking up that cost and they are out of their homes for the time being. again they are going to open up a permanent set of offices here in this area so they can work with those homeowners and hope to get all six of them back inside their homes within the next couple weeks. that is the fingers crossed hope for here in the west portal area. >> what a mess. thank you for that. the water department expects to be there working on the water line, every day, for the next three months. and outside tampa florida, crews are getting a better look
